Time and Distance

The largest investor-owned and public utilities have trusted our experts for more than 30 years to optimize their utilities routing and improve service to more than 50 million meters, including residential and commercial meters for electric, natural gas and water utility services.

STREAMLINE TRADITIONAL METER READING OPERATIONS

Developing route plans within business requirements, our route optimization software enables utilities to balance meter reading workloads into contiguous geographic areas across cycle days. Once cycle days are balanced, you can easily create daily routes that provide appropriate workloads for your meter readers. Through advanced settings, you have the power to minimize travel distances for traditional walking and driving routes.

POWERFUL, EFFICIENT, PRECISE AMR ROUTING


Implementing your automated meter reading (AMR) system requires significant resources, but using our solutions allows you to gain the most from your investment. Your ERTs and mobile collectors allow you to acquire monthly reads more efficiently than traditional walk- and drive-to meter routes, but the routes designed to collect the data need to change to get the most from your AMR investment.

You can maximize efficiency by reducing your reading days per month to as few as five when building geographically compact cycle days coupled with an increase in daily read rates. Our advanced AMR solvers take into account varying read ranges of ERTs and create a driving travel path based on the minimum set of streets you’d need to travel to read every meter. This efficiently decreases travel distances, allowing you to significantly increase your daily read rate.

Precisely following the RouteSmart-optimized AMR travel path is very important in order to maximize your AMR investment. We integrate our solution with Webfleet Solutions connected navigation solution to enable meter readers to precisely execute and track their optimized route in the field, without requiring extensive geographic knowledge or experience.

EVERYDAY FIELD SERVICE ROUTING CHALLENGES

Eliminate the cumbersome task of planning and executing survey and inspection processes by integrating our SaaS-based route optimization with inspection compliance software to automatically perform daily workload planning and geographic territory assignments for:

  • Leak Surveys
  • Cathodic Gas Inspections
  • Hydrant, Valve and Pump PM’s
  • Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Audits

Tackle the largest workload planning problems faced by a utility with our unique high-density address balancing and sequencing solvers, while ensuring that regulatory inspection and survey requirements get fulfilled effectively.

Electric, gas and water utilities can plan, optimize, balance and visualize workloads with a powerful route optimization toolset. You will feel confident knowing your crew can react and respond quickly to unplanned situations, like electric or gas outages, by targeting defined portions of a service area and determining the optimal number of crews required to restore service.
